just say off the top also, we're actually at a mitt romney event waiting for him to come in. but to your point about rick santorum and those comments about english only, it is something that enflames passions on both sides. in terms of conservative circles, fred, conservatives feel like english should be the language of the land. it is just one of the enduring conservative ideals, right? and when he said that in puerto rico, he was then asked about it a little later and he stood by it, didn't really back down from it too much, but a lot of people in puerto rico and beyond, latinos back here in the u.s., it raised a lot of eyebrows. one puerto rican official said that it was a very limiting and narrow view and when you couple that, fred, couple that with some people who feel like republicans have been taking some very hard line anti-latino -- a hard line against issues that latinos care about, take illegal immigration, a lot of republicans say they want to deport illegal aliens or people who have been living here in the u.s. for a while, sonia sotomayor, the supreme court jus

the possibilities of people dropping out. if mitt romney can come on this, then the argument is going to end right there. because of the perceived divide within the party is, i think it is wise to prepare for the possibilities. >> i know you are quite familiar with rule number 30. this change from 2008-2012. >> that is exactly what the rick santorum group is try to push for. mitt romney may have 1 million more votes. mitt romney may have more delegates than the other three candidates combined. when you come to tampa, anything goes. just like when ted kennedy tried to make it an open convention in 1980 against jimmy carter. you need somebody to be president obama. if it is not going to be met romney, it should be us. >> it is an industrial state. it is a state that rick santorum needs to prove that he can win. that is going to keep this race going. it is not winner-take-all. each is going to walk away with some delegates. >> we talked about how the money is very important. rick santorum did not have the money to file in every congressional district in illinois. even if he does well, he will be shut
as a conservative alternative to mitt romney. newt gingri newt gingrich previously staked his campaign on that, says he'll take it all the way to the august convention in tampa. >> we will continue to run a people's campaign. i believe after the two primaries are over, it will be obvious, that the so-called front runner didn't get there and from that point on we'll be in an all new situation. >> and joining us columnist dan ettinger and mary anastasia o'grady. and what do you think of newt gingrich, looks like even he does not believe he can get enough delegations during the primary. >> no, it's absolutely bizarre that he's insisting that he's a viable candidate. he's not doing well anywhere, but i think that he may have, be hanging on for three reasons. one, i think he doesn't think that santorum can get the nomination. >> right. >> and secondly, and he's not at that far behind in the the popular vote from santorum, and secondly, he doesn't think that romney, because romney hasn't been able to overwelcome anybody in any one of the states, is accepted by conservatives in the-- in the party. >> right
romney on top with 37. santorum at 31. gingrich, way down there at 14, and paul at 8. let me go to you, john heilemann. is this a chance for greatness for santorum to win a big state? >> certainly a chance for greatness, chris. the state of illinois hasn't had a competitive primary in decades on the republican presidential side. it is very much a state geographically divided between the north and south. you have republican, suburban republican counties around chicago and suburbs that are pretty moderate, should be romney country. then down state illinois, very conservative, much more like the south than like anything around chicago, and that's good hunting ground for santorum. gingrich has more or less abandoned the field there, headed down -- made a quick stop there yesterday or today, is headed now to camp out in louisiana. that 14% that gingrich has may erode considerably, may erode to santorum's advantage. it would be a huge win for santorum if he could pick up illinois after coming in so close in michigan and ohio, winning in the industrial midwest. it would be a big blow to romne
. >> [inaudible] romney, i think he has done an excellent job. [laughter] now, in fact, he has laid out a comprehensive, by far the most comprehensive approach to foreign policy. perrylawn white paper, given a big speech on the subject -- he has a very long white paper, given a big speech on the subject. as is the nature of most primary campaigns, it has not been the topic du jour. you do not get a chance to lay out your vision of foreign policy when you are debating contraception and all the other important topics they are debating. i think you'll see more. the better time to ask this question will be in the general election, because then i think there will be a discussion about american foreign policy. i think there has been room for criticism of the obama administration. i know that one of the major approaches of governor romney, for instance, is that for quite some time in various parts of the world, president obama has not been great with a number of our allies. he is now, by the way, scrambling to repair that image. is meeting with david cameron is intended to undo the slyke was
romney after a pair of victories by rick santorum, and many prodding newt gingrich, again, to quit the race, and what about santorum's charge that fox news is schilling for romney? plus, comedian ali wentworth on her new show. her marriage to george stephanopoulos, and how the president reacted when he heard she would be entertaining at the white house. >> obama said, ali wentworth, isn't she inappropriate? which in my world is a huge compliment. >> huge. i'm howard kurtz, and this is "reliable sources." >> it was the most popular episode in the history of this american life. public radio reported on alleged abuses at a chinese factory that makes ipads and iphones. it relied heavily on one-man performance artist mike daisy. hurz hoe ira glass put it. >> when i saw mike daisy perform this story on stage, when i left the theater, i had a lot of the questions. i mean, he is nott a reporter, and i wondered did he get it right? and so we've actually spent a few weeks checking everything that he says in his show. then the workers start coming in. they come in in twos and threes and fours

to give up that issue. for romney to get out and say, i would repeal it, is fine. it does not have the power to politically motivated people to volunteer that someone who has been a permanent opponent does. you effectively give that up if you select romney as the nominee. we may end up doing that. the economy has much more to talk about than his focus, but i do think this issue plays a big role in that, and santorum is leveraging that as much as he can. >> santorum accuses romney of supporting the federal mandate. do you think romney supported the federal mandate as santorum says? >> if what i read is correct, yes. he was the model for the national version, and i do not think that is a surprise to anybody. romney correct the distinguishes between the constitutional aspects of doing it at the federal level as opposed to the state level. but if what i have seen is accurate and he supported it at the national level as well, like newt gingrich, i have a problem with that. >> did you support romney in the primary in virginia? >> no, i stayed out of that. >> you did not vote? >> oh, no,
portion. >> if govern r governor romney thinks that he is the ceo, he doesn't understand what conservatives believe in. we don't want somebody to manage the economy. we want somebody to get him out of the office avenue santorum saying that he is the face of conservativism. >> you know, i think going into puerto rico you would have to give the advantage to mitt romney. he had the endorsement of the governor there. more than that, it was a mitt romney kind of place and then rick santorum went down there that did not help him down there. so i think that we would be surprised if mitt romney did not win in purt roek key. >> og okay. go going into tuesday, by the way, we should have results somewhere in that 4:00 either hour. you'll join us. >> hopefully, yeah. >> hopefully once those polls close at 4:00. so then most candidates might want the result of one race to bett better poise them than he would have in puerto rico. >> well, you know, maybe. listen, this is a fairly sizeable contingent evangelical voters but i think the state is looking better for mitt romney. we look back at
where you things stand right now. this is 7% of the polls are in. mitt romney 86%. rick santorum 7%. newt gingrich 1%. ron paul 1%, again, this is 7% of the results are in right now, we're going to continue to update you on this. romney was endorsed by puerto rico's governor, and romney and santorum both campaigned last week. if no one gets 50% of the delegates, they'll be awarded proportionately. we'll continue to update these results as they come in. they're coming in moment by moment. don't go anywhere. man, this is going down to the convention and still we don't know what is going to happen. exciting. and nothing gets americans riled up more than talking about politics than gas prices. but who's really to blame? let's talk about gas price politics in the white house rice. with with will cane and a senior writer for we'll have to get you a shorter intro i'm going to start with will just for that. is it really fair to blame the president, any president i'm talking about, george bush, president obama, clinton, whomever about gas prices, about high gas prices? >> simple a

for the latest in what has been a series of race and momentum defining state primari primaries. can mitt romney's money and the advantage he has with the money help him to defend his front-runner status. can rick santorum's message land him another upset? mitt romney's campaign and super pac poured a whopping $3.3 million into illinois to fill the state's airwaves with ads. rick santorum showed up comparatively less armed to the illinois add wars meeting romney's millions with $446,000. between his campaign and the super pac that supports him, he has not nearly as much money as mitt romney has got. but add to santorum's financial capital the capital that he gains from the momentum that he earned with his wins across the south. delivered by voters who are responding to santorum's true conservative message. now, the rebounding economy hasn't allowed romney much traction with his position that's the economic heavyweight. so he's fallen back on a platform that's solid but considerably less sexy. >> inches us closer to that magic number. >> oh, that magic number. thank you, mitt romney. for that han

. it is proportional. but mitt romney felt fairly confident he'll get maybe the majority of those delegates. >> if he gets over 50%, he gets to keep all those delegates. that's a nice little stash. particularly as he tries to frame this not as a state by state or in puerto rico's case, a territory by territory race, but as a delegate race. and picking up 20 delegates going into illinois, where there are more delegates at stake. certainly it gives him momentum, but there is a cautionary tale about momentum this season and that is no one seems to be able to get it and retain it for very long. sometimes it is the next election or next state where they lose it completely. it is slightly underperforming, the big mo, as george bush, the dad, used to call it this season, but there is always the hope that it will catch on, certainly in the romney campaign. they're looking for something that puts them on the track and keeps them on the track. illinois, nice big state, lots of delegates at stake they would like to do it there. >> and mitt romney, right now, in illinois, campaigning, he's feeling fairly confide
